Melbourne outfit Ramona Sky announce EP launch and departure of band members

Ramona Sky

With their debut EP releasing to all streaming platforms on July 1, Ramona Sky are celebrating the launch with their biggest gig yet at The Tote on July 9.

The EP Launch will be an extra special show, as not only will they be launching their debut work, but will also be saying farewell to guitarist Bobby Sek and bassist Nick Laby after almost 2 years of live shows together. Ramona Sky’s self-titled EP reflects the band’s unique story of originally meeting online, bonding over Zoom during Melbourne’s lockdown, and writing music over video chat. The EP came together over a stressful year in and out of lockdowns and uncertainty, whilst the band squeezed in as many live shows around Melbourne’s most iconic venues as they could in between. Ramona Sky’s debut EP features 6 tracks, including released singles ‘Think You’re Mine’ and ‘Taxi’.
